Pixel power.
With an 18.2-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, capture high-resolution images that take full advantage of the camera's high quality Carl Zeiss lens. More pixels means you can enlarge, zoom in and crop your photos without losing detail. Advanced processing technology reduces noise and graininess for incredibly crisp, clear images—even in challenging low-light conditions.

Down to the finest detail.
Capture ultra fine details—like the surface of an ice crystal or intricate texture of a flower petal—using Magnifying Glass Plus mode. Every subtle nuance is translated with depth and accuracy for intriguing, macro-like photographs. Soft LED lighting reduces unwanted shadows and helps bring the photo to life.

Crisp, beautiful HD videos.
Record crystal-clear movies in high resolution with HD 1080/60i AVCHD video capture (records in 29-minute segments). Stunning, fast-motion video with reduced distortion looks great when played back on your HDTV2. Notice a perfect photo op while shooting video? With dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both at the same time.
